Black Stars Stagnant In Latest Fifa Ranking



Black Stars line-up at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations

Ghana stayed in 23rd place on the latest Fifa released on Wednesday for the month of March.

The Black Stars could not accumulate points despite drawing 1-1 with South American side Chile in Philadelphia last month but remained the continent’s second best team.

Ninety-one games have been taken into account, three-quarters of which were friendly matches.

The biggest climbers of the month all come from Africa, however, with the victors of 13 matches in the second round of CAF Africa Cup of Nations 2013 qualifying all securing the most points, and Congo (101st, up 29), Chad (112th, up 29) and São Tomé e Príncipe (115th, up 23) in particular all causing a stir.

The Netherlands (2nd, up 1) are once again Spain’s closest challengers thanks to their 3-2 victory in England, which was coupled with a 2-1 defeat for Germany (3rd, down 1).

Meanwhile, Argentina (8th, up 3) have returned to the top ten after a one-month absence, pushing Denmark (11th, down 1) out of the coveted positions in the process.

According to FIFA, the CAF Africa Cup of Nations has left its mark on the latest edition of the ranking as winners, Zambia have climbed two places up.
